I have tried EVERYTHING I could find on your website. Nothing has fixed the problem. Wife having same problems on her PC. Firefox just stops or hangs. Can NOT change websites, scroll up or down, nothing. We get "Unresponsive Script" and Unresponsive Plugin - Shockwave Flash. Where we purchased our PC's is saying all their customers are complaining. Do we have to go to Chrome to solve this problem?

Just updated my firefox browser and now my mouse won't let me click links if they are on a small part of the screen. If I move to a new window then move that window out of that part of the screen, I can click fine. I've tried disabling all add-ons to fix. Nothing works.

I had got a new laptop a few weeks ago and immediately installed Firefox, which I've always used. The laptop has been really, really slow and I've had problems opening FB games and visiting any other pages with a lot of graphics. I actually thought it was a problem with the new laptop's graphics and was ready for calling Toshiba, but I decided to try Internet Explorer there and hey presto .. everything works just great!

Is there a compatibility issue with Windows 10/Firefox? I've tried resetting Firefox, etc, but to no avail.

Firefox 48.0

have tried to stop the plug-in, but the box disappears so fast. have managed to click it, but the message keeps coming up every minute. opened the Task Manager to try and see what it says. "Plug-in hang for Firefox (32-bit). I have checked that all my plug-ins are up to date. not sure what else to do. cannot use AOL or play any games on Facebook. The main content works on Facebook just not the games. this makes it rather tough to use Firefox because it's locked up or at least very very slow. you can only click on one thing and wait 60 seconds before browser refreshes. would appreciate it if you can help. until then I will be using Google Chrome but not willingly. :(

thanx, harumi52

I believe this issue began back when version 40 was released and I am just tired of it not working. The problem is that auto-fill in the url bar does not work, but auto complete does. Before I was able to start typing an address and it would auto fill the address bar as I type. Example would be that I type "re" and it would auto fill "reddit.com" and I would just need to press enter. I can still accomplish the same thing, but I need to press down or click from the populated list that shows below the address bar.

From all my searching, the solution is supposed to be to make sure that browser.url.autoFill is set True in about:config. This is set. I have tried changing it, changing it back, reinstalling, fresh install, non-beta install, disabling all addons, but nothing has worked. I still have this functionality in IE, Edge, and Chrome. What should I do and has anyone else had this problem?

On text only pages, Firefox displays text Left-to-Right (LTR) by default, even for plain text in which the language is read Right-to-Left (RTL). Firefox should either,

1) display content LTR or RTL on the basis of script (e.g., UTF-8 Hebrew text should be aligned RIGHT) 2) provide a user option to toggle which way all the text should be aligned on text only pages (perhaps, via the context menu)

Thank you

How to enlarge firefox ui without enlarging websites?

I use 125% dpi in windows so everything is nice and big for me but Fx ui is too small. Fiddling with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx does help, wetting it to it's default -1.0 state makes every website and images on them out of proportion so it has to be manually set to 1.0, that makes websites display at 100% dpi but it also makes firefox display at smaller ui size. I want Firefox UI to become bigger, is there some addon for that or ADVANCE measure via about:config for this?

PS: I don't look for noob advices PS2: I'll add image comparing windows menu sizes and MS Edge Ui size with websites at 100% dpi compared to firefox. I wanted to upload the image here but since it doesn't work here is a proper link to imgur for it: http://i.imgur.com/79TQqDM.png

Printing from the new default print preview button causes option to print selection to be greyed out.

This issue seems to have persisted for a number of years and still isn't fixed?

What workaround is available for elderly relatives who are not familiar with keyboard shortcuts?

Is there any way to add the standard print dialogue to a toolbar button?

Even with an addon or bookmarklet or something at the very least?

Linking Twitter to Facebook results in message "Failed to load the Facebook SDK". Login from Twitter to Facebook account 'hangs'. Clearing cookies, disabling firewall and antivirus etc. does not help. According to forums etc lots of users have this problem, but no solution. Problem does NOT appear when I use Edge or IE11. Firefox is on latest level.
